Don't let the pic fool you.
He has no idea how to ride it.
He will sit there & yell "Mommeeeee, Mommeeee, help me, help me"
So I run over, bend over, put his feet on the pedals & push him all the while I yell "Push your feet! Push your feet!"
It doesn't work, well it does, if we go down hill, even ground or a slight incline causes mass hysteria in the toddler when his tricycle won't go.
Now onto what I have taught the cutie pie up there.
Sure, he knows his ABC's & how to count to 12.
I need to make sure he knows the finer things in life.
Say for instance
Me: "What does a cat say?"
Me: "What does a chicken say?"
C: "Brock, brock"
Me: "What does a vampire say?"
C (with hand gestured like a claw) "Blah! Blah!"
Me: "What else does a vampire say?"
C: "I vant to bite your neck!"
A boy has got to learn these things. Of course, this lesson could come from the fact that I am reading the third book in the Twilight series. Don't know.
Over the weekend, I have taught C how to communicate with other drivers you have cut you off.
Say for instance when I have the right of way, the car coming the other way has the right of way, yet the driver waiting to go straight through the intersection thinks it's an appropriate time to jet out in front of you & the other driver, causing you to jam on the brakes & swerve.
This is when I scream
From the backseat I hear the binky pop out his mouth & with the same inflection in his voice I hear:
Makes a mother proud, doesn't it!?
This evening was the piece-de-resistance in his quest to gather all that is knowledgable.
As I was making dinner & Cheeks was underfoot in my spacious 6x4 kitchen I decided to have a little fun.
I taught him to stick his tushie out, bounce it up & down, slapping it all the while singing "Pump up the Jam, Pump it up!"
It was quite comical if I do say so myself & I plan on using the flip to record & share this little morsel of cuteness with you all soon.
So, on that note, don't forget my giveaway (down there)
Tell me what you have taught your children this week.
